Webmin through Apache proxy - authentication cookies not working

I am trying to set up Apache and Webmin so that I can access Webmin by going to I am using the direction at under the "Webmin In A Sub-Directory Via A Proxy" section. I had this setup working before, but I think an update of either Webmin or Apache broke it. Now, I can go the the webpage and I see the login screen. However, when I try to log in, I get an error.
Error - No cookies

Your browser does not support cookies, which are required for this web server to work in session authentication mode
I have tried adding the ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain and ProxyPassReverseCookiePath directives to my virtual host config file, but it still doesn't work.

# webmin
ProxyPass /webmin/ http://localhost:10000/
ProxyPassReverse /webmin/ http://localhost:10000/
ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain /webmin/ http://localhost:10000/
ProxyPassReverseCookiePath /webmin/ http://localhost:10000/
The Apache error log shows nothing when this happens, but the access log shows what could be a 500 error every time.

[09/Jul/2011:17:05:31 -0400] "POST /webmin/session_login.cgi HTTP/1.1" 500 3411 "" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_8) AppleWebKit/535.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/13.0.782.41 Safari/535.1"
Any idea what is wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I got it working. I forgot about another proxy I had set up. Some of those settings were overriding these ones. I just put each proxy in its own <Location> tag and everything works.


apache, webmin
